to throw some fuel into the fire here. for an already tense session at the united nations, the general assembly is trying to deal with the palestinian authority's intention of putting in a request for u.n. membership. that would essentially force the world to recognize palestinian statehood without any direct negotiations between the palestinian authority and israel and it's a very dangerous slope as far as president obama is concerned. he spent his time at the podium urging the palestinian authority not to do that. but at this point, there's no indication that they are not going to go forward. the u.s., of course, has that option of vetoing the request outright. it would put an end to it. there's concern that the u.s. does that, there could be a backlash of violence in the middle east so a very precarious situation today. and mahmoud ahmadinejad's arrival here at the u.n. to speak is not putting anyone at ease. that's the latest from here at the u.n. let's take it back to you guys. >> all right, thank you very much for the live report from the east side of manhattan. >> now to the oth
of iranian americans are outside of the united nations building to protest the presence of iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad. a short time from now, he is set to address the u.n. generalcy s -- general assembly. in years gone by he's insinuated the american government was behind 9/11 and claimed homosexuality doesn't exist in iran. and can we expect more of the same today? i am joined now by bobby goesh. what do you expect today? >> if anything it is set up so he is probably going to be even more inflammatory. understand he is coming to new york, the weakest he's ever been in his presidency. the arab spring is completely destroyed his hopes of extending iranian influence in the arab world. he's having tremendous difficulty with his greatest ally, syria, which is in meltdown. and at home he's having sort of serious competition with the clergy, with the alternative power. he is coming to new york. he's very weak. even the episode where he released scott and josh. they announced they were going to be released immediately and the clergy said no, they are not. they are questioning him and pus
at united nations. today's address by the iranian president ahmadinejad was certainly no exception. for 30 minutes he lambasted the united states and its western allies, prompting a mass walkout by many diplomats in the general assembly. what is different this year is ahmadinejad's standing at home in iran, we're taking a closer look. cnn's brian todd working the story for us. what's going on with ahmadinejad inside iran? >> reporter: wolf, analysts say he's had internal struggles with the man who is once his chief backer, supreme leader. ahmadinejad needs to build capital at home and in the broader middle east, and observers say speeches like this help him do that, even if many find them outrageous. it was classic ahmadinejad. less than seven minutes in, iran's president blasted the u.s. and other western powers, though not by name. >> translator: who abducted forcefully tens of millions of people from their homes in africa and other regions of the world during the dark period of slavery. who used the mysterious september 11th incident as a pretext to attack afghanistan and iran. >> repor
? >> well, i think he is likely to get support from the world in the general assembly, and that's really the issue, is that for most members of the united nations around the world, this is an easy vote, you vote on behalf of the palestinians, you vote for them to be recognized as a full member, as a state. the problem is to become a real member of the united nations, you have to be a state, and to achieve that, you have to get the security council to bless it. the united states has said it will veto it -- >> why? >> the reason the united states is going to veto it is because we have taken the view, the united states, that a full fledged state of palestine should come about through negotiations with the israelis. and just as we ask the israelis not to take steps to prejudge the outcome of negotiations, we're asking the -- the obama administration is asking the palestinians not to prejudge the outcome by taking these unilateral steps. the idea here is this is a tough problem, and the palestinians and the israelis have to solve it together, and one side just acting is not going to solve the
